We just started training with Shahar and she's been wonderful. She has a great amount of resources and takes time to explain why dogs have certain behaviors and how to properly correct them. We're very excited to see how our dog continues to progress with her help!

Ryan was excellent in helping me train our dog Archie! He corrected me on my training and helped us with training aspects we could work on at home! Definitely recommend any with a bigger dog to go with K9SF for their training. Ryan is very knowledgeable and great with the dogs!!

Rita clearly loves dogs and knows animal behavior. She worked wonders with our Rat Terrier (and us for that matter!) I had looked at some of the dog training classes in the area and none of the times worked for us. What's great about Rita is she's flexible and works within your schedule. Also, the training is one-on-one which is not the case with classes. She works specifically to the level and needs of your dog. After each class, she leaves you with very detailed instructions on what she just taught you, which is great because there was always something I forgot. She also makes herself available by text if you have any questions. Best of all, she makes it fun for all. I know I will return to her to brush up or take our training to the next level.

Lori Brown of Browns Dog Training, is a very unconventional trainer. Lori devotes her entire day and home to the animals she trains, boards, provides day care for and clearly is fulfilling her passion to animals. Our Hunter, loved staying with Lori for two weeks and was still happy to see us when we came to pick him up. Believe me, Lori is an excellent trainer and so passionate about her four legged family. I suggest you at least meet Lori. She is unconventional but fantastic with dogs. We will bring Hunter back just so he can see Lori again.

I spent a lot of time researching various options for my corgi puppy when I found out I was going to be in Europe for 4 weeks. I looked into various boot camps, board and train facilities, as well as asking relatives to look after my Kirby. When I came across Crystal's website, I immediately contacted her and arranged a meeting. Right off the bat she was extremely responsive, kind, professional, and demonstrated a wealth of knowledge about dogs and canine psychology. I could also tell that she and her husband really cared and loved all of the dogs that stayed with them and I knew in my gut that I could trust them. My instincts proved right when Crystal brought back an unbelievably well-trained Kirby at the conclusion of camp. What was once a nippy, sassy pup who was impossible to walk, became a well-behaved puppy who will not even graze her teeth on my skin and walks RIGHT next to me whenever she is on a leash. Kirby also learned how to do "place," an extremely useful command where she stays in one place until I let her free, along with other basic commands like "sit" and "down." One thing that really distinguishes Crystal's program from others is the fact that Crystal and another trainer Katie personally came to my house to drop off Kirby at the end of camp and went through a detailed "go home session" showing me everything they taught Kirby, their training methods, and how to best follow up to ensure that her training continues beyond camp. I was really impressed with everything they showed me, and the follow up techniques have been working well. Overall I would rate Crystal's training program a 10/10. I am grateful for how much progress Kirby made and how flexible Crystal was with me when I had to keep changing the dates that Kirby was to be at camp. Thank you Crystal, Riley, and Katie for everything you did for Kirby!

Roxanne is amazing! She has worked so diligently with our family and our puppy's needs. Any problem we were having, she had a way to address it. The best part is, it works!! She has a miracle solution for every instance. Roxanne is always willing to listen and do what is best for the family and the dog. Her techniques are easy to follow and always positive! She has reassured our family that we are making progress and are doing what is best for our puppy. We have seen wonderful changes in our puppy and are excited to continue to work with Roxanne. :)

I met Denise through my vet when looking for a puppy. The timing for a puppy was not in the cards at that time, however, we kept in touch. We are now training together with my first working line soon to be one year old female GSD. Denise has been a wealth of knowledge and is a wonderful trainer. Phone calls and/or messages of any kind are returned in a timely fashion and a professional manner. She is very patient and explains things well and I need this given this is my first go round at training. We had worked with another trainer for a short period of time and that wasn't working well for us. Am glad for that because it landed us at Denise's door. I would not hesitate recommending Denise for any breeding and/or training needs. We are beyond pleased with the services we are getting.

Sammi always does a great job taking care of the huge menagerie that we have. She's flexible and is easy to work with (and puts up with all the changing and long-winded instructions I leave). The animals all love her. She leaves great notes about how things went while we were gone. We've been using her for years and love her.

I will help you train your pup or dog to be the best dog he/she can be! I will get to know your dog on a personal level and learn its twerks and kinks. Knowing the dog's personality is the first step I take before I begin his/her training. Every dog is different. Some may take longer than others to train. If you are not satisfied with my work then don't be afraid to let me know, and I'll give you your money back.

About

I am a certified dog trainer, and I use only positive training methods. The clicker/reward is a great fun way to work with a dog! Being a good leader versus using dominance or pack leader is more productive and teachable. I also have a dog rescue and work with problems that rescues sometimes bring with them. I am a support system during any training process.
